Quarterback Joe Cox will be tested immediately as the Bulldogs travel to Stillwater in one of the marquee matchups of the opening weekend. The Cowboys will have three new starters in the secondary, so Georgia should have big-play opportunities.
While the Bulldogs may be young this season, they won't lack for experience. No fewer than 21 freshmen logged playing time in 2008 for a team that started the year ranked No. 1 in the country.
